Sulfur Springs, the fifteenth novel in my Cork O’Connor series, was published in August 2017. I’m excited about this entry because it’s one of my favorites. It takes Cork to the Sonoran Desert of southern Arizona in July, searching for Peter Bisonette, the son of Cork’s new bride, Rainy. The mystery of Peter’s disappearance draws Cork and Rainy deep into the ongoing struggle along our border with Mexico, an undeclared war involving drug runners, human traffickers, and vigilantes. It’s a thrill ride of a story, with an important message at its heart.
I loved the research for this novel, much of which I did in the middle of a ferocious Arizona summer. I received help from a great many who call southern Arizona home: members of Los Samaritanos and Humane Borders, whose mission is to give relief to the refugees still streaming into this country; agents of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol; and many of the local residents who experience the turmoil firsthand.
I signed a thousand copies of Sulfur Springs for Barnes and Noble. There are still some available; just use this link.
